Car fax has an accident on file that never happened. Also the mileage on file is a discrepancy. They will not get in contact with me to solve this issue.
Carfax Vehicle History Report Review

Duped in to signing up (and paying for) "unlimited car fax reports". Make sure you read the fine print! Unlimited licens plate reports....NOT VIN reports. Not sure what good a license plate report would do for someone looking for a used car,especially when purchasing from a dealer (no license plate on the car). Be careful and DON'T WASTE YOUR MONEY!

Went to main page of Carfax. Only three options were given for reports. The most expensive one listed is $99.00 which says it gives 5 vin checks. Curious as to where the unlimited license plate lookups came in, I did an FAQ for their site and it said that the 5 vin...Read more
